Changes to royal titles after divorce to get new guidelines

New guidelines over changes to royal titles after divorce are to be issued on the authority of the Queen. But Buckingham Palace denied any snub to the Princess of Wales was intended by making the announcement, in the official London Gazette, in the week of her divorce.
